... the other Black experience

Stream '50 Shades of Melanin' documentary about colorism in the UK


Founded by Naomi Grant, “Look At My Black Beauty” is an online platform documenting the black female experience in the 21st Century in the United Kingdom. The work that Naomi is spearheading culminated in a short documentary about colorism in her country entitled ‘50 Shades of Melanin.’ Running 30 minutes long, it relies primarily on firsthand accounts and interviews as its content, giving a space for British Black women to speak out against the colorism they face on a day to day basis and offer their perspectives on why and how it took root in the Black community. Overall, LAMBB is working to secure a place for black girls to commune and feel safe away from a society that constantly condemns them, a place where colorism, sexism, misogynoir, and the host of other isms can be shed for the full spectrum of humanity. Stream ‘50 Shades of Melanin’ documentary below and follow LAMBB on Tumblr and Instagram to stay updated on their work.
